Amazon's Alexa is rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl



We’re just a few days away from the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots facing off in Super Bowl LII, and one of tech’s most famous gadgets has apparently already picked a side.

Indeed, we confirmed the message on our own Alexa and her hot take on the defense — “I’m flying with the Eagles on this one because their relentless defense and the momentum they’ve been riding off their underdog status” — isn’t a bad one considering how the Jacksonville Jaguars managed to keep the Patriots in check for most of the AFC Championship game.  Read more…

5 YouTube workouts you'll actually want to do



For the unseasoned athlete, YouTube workouts can be pretty difficult. For some people (hello), they can also feel deeply embarrassing.

To be clear, we’re not knocking the power of the high-energy, Blogilates-type workout vid — those can be extremely motivational for someone who wants to dial up to 11. But if you’re looking for something a little more chill and a little less corny, YouTube can be a bit of a minefield.

#TimesUp for video games. Finally.

Atari founder Nolan Bushnell will no longer receive the prestigious Pioneer Award at the annual Game Developers Choice Awards in March. He had previously been announced as the recipient for 2018, but backlash from the community stemming largely from Bushnell’s past comments and behavior compelled the change.
